The Godzilla: King of the Monsters credits proves that Monarch's next mission is to journey to Skull Island to uncover the origin of the Titans. This detail provides the setup for Godzilla vs. Kong, a movie that will pit the King of the Monsters against the King of the Primates in a highly-anticipated grudge match. Directed by Adam Wingard, Godzilla vs. Kong releases in March of next year.
The aftermath of Godzilla's fight with King Ghidorah at the end of the film is revealed in Godzilla: King of the Monsters' credits. The credits include newspaper clippings and article headlines that tease what's next for Godzilla. The credits also reveal that the eco-terrorists succeeded in their plan to revitalize the planet, Godzilla is reining in the other monsters and sending them back home, and Monarch has gone public with what they know about the 17 Titans. Of course, there are also numerous references to King Kong and Skull Island, but one thing in particular might set up what the franchise's clandestine organization will do next.
Among the tidbits of information revealed about Monarch and Skull Island is that Monarch is now digging into the mystery behind the origin of the Titans. The article titled "Monarch To Explore Hollow Earth" explains that Monarch is going to investigate the entry point to the Hollow Earth found beneath Skull Island. This is similar to the synopsis for Godzilla vs. Kong, which states that in the movie the once-secret organization "embarks on a perilous mission into uncharted terrain and unearths the Titans' clues". The credits confirm that this "perilous mission" begins with Skull Island.
It's becoming increasingly clear that Skull Island will be one of the settings featured in Godzilla vs. Kong. It could even be the backdrop for the impending clash between the two Titans. This could tie in to another headline from the credits, which mentions that "New Titans" will soon arrive on Skull Island. Both of these headlines may partially explain the plot of Godzilla vs. Kong. If Titans come to Skull Island through Hollow Earth while Monarch is exploring it, it could erupt into a life-or-death situation for the Monarch scientists.
There's no telling what they'll find when Monarch starts their search. They could find evidence for more Titans, such as Anguirus, or even awaken something that no one at Monarch even knows about. The ancient underwater civilization in King of the Monsters could be just a taste of what secrets the Hollow Earth theory holds for the MonsterVerse's future.
